"i think it's the 'wild wild west.' restrictions are needed on those with so much money and so much political power." allegations against murray energy sparked a federal elections commission complaint and a call for the u.s. attorney in northern ohio to investigate. these are hardly the only allegations of political pressure employers are applying in the workplace. two weeks ago, employees of koch industries received voter information packets full of company-endorsed republicans warning that "employees and conctractors may suffer the consequences of voting for president obama and other democrats."

in the united states. if you took a look at other populations of other countries, you would find that out of 195 countries, the black population is bigger than 163 countries, including canada and argentina. so definitely we have a lot of consumers here, and the power that they bring to the table needs to be recognized. > > and it is growing. what was the figure i saw? by 2015 it will be over a trillion dollars? > > by 2015 the buying power will be 1.1 trillion dollars. > > and yet there is this disparity in how advertising dollars are being spent to reach or to kind of ignore that market. > > i think one of the things that advertisers mistakenly think is that because there are no language barriers like you have with the asian community or the hispanic community, that blacks can be reached simply through general market advertising efforts, and that's simply not the case. what you see is, last year, in 2011, there was $120 billion spent on advertising with general marketers and advertisers. only $2.1 billion was spent with african-american media. so that's a little under 2% of all advertising spen
